Tarazed is the new home of the Systems Commonwealth. It had remained hidden from the slipstream until the Andromeda Ascendant had found a way of getting there. This is where we meet Telemachus Rhade, a descendent of Gaheris Rhade, one of the original crew members of the Andromeda before he betrayed them. It is a planet where the Magog had some of their ships built.
Tarazed is also a star in the Aquilaconstellation.
